#Throwbackthursday – Then & Now

In keeping with #TBT (throw back thursday) hashtag fad, we found this little throw back photo of one of our Bennion & Deville current listings in an architectural books titled Homes and Gardens of the Pacific Coast Seattle 1913 …

Book caption reads: “detail of central section, which is flanked by symmetrical wings. Architect was Carl F. Gould, who designed not only many beautiful homes but also most of the Gothic Revival-style buildings of the University of Washington. This house was built in 1910 for the Francis Brownell family.”

This architectural book was published in 1974 so our assumption is that this photo must be at least 40 years old.  It’s clear that this residence looks much the same as it did all those years ago, improved only by the addition of a spa with a mosaic glass wall tucked just under the round arch beneath the expanded stone terrace.  It’s always wonderful to see an architecturally significant and historic home like this so beautifully preserved with updates that show ingenuity and thought.

Happy almost Friday!
